Cognex Corporation now offers new software for its In-Sight vision sensors. The new software improves workflow, eases integration and speeds deployment of vision sensors on the factory floor. In-Sight Explorer 3.1 now features the familiar Microsoft Windows XP look and feel and supports the use of industry-standard OPC communication tags. In-Sight OPC Server makes it easier than ever to exchange data with other OPC programs and systems including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), distributed control systems (DCS) and distributed I/O networks. In-Sight ActiveX Display Control allows users to easily integrate In-Sight images and display graphics into third-party HMI and SCADA packages. The new software is designed to enable customers to realize tremendous productivity gains during development and integration by making it easier to display images and use data generated by In-Sight vision sensors for machine monitoring, supervisory control and statistical process control.
